When you blend text and graphics on a slide, it usually has a greater impact. Both can be used to provide context, demonstrate a process with a visual example, or make the information more engaging in general.
It’s best if text and image don’t overlap when they’re both presents at the same time. As a result, you might want to correctly enclose the text, which looks better and addresses the problem.
If you’re new to Google Slides, one of the most common problems you’ll run into is being unable to wrap text around photos and other objects. Wrapping text in Google Slides doesn’t work the same way it does in other popular presentation software! So, what are your options? Here’s how to wrap text in Google Slides to make your presentations look a little smarter than usual.
